I'm not saying that TWC should go back to being exactly the same as they were back in the 80s...But they should reconnect with the elements that made them stand out and yes some of that was a bit of quirkiness and geekiness...the variation of elements used back then worked really well because they didn't keep repeating the same stuff during the forecasts over and over and over again like they tend to do now. I really was glad to see that the best elements of TWC are still there..when they want to use them...they did amazing coverage of the Tornado Outbreak (Saturday) and while they please me with plenty of meterological aspects, at the same time the ydid a very good job of integrating it into the general forecast so that the coverage would appeal to just about everyone watching... I was sorry to see them leave live air at midnight when severe activity was still occuring though. I'd like to see them "hire" some of those really cheap grad students for the overnight slots!!!! I bet they'd work for minimum wage!
